    I always recommend Visual Studio over any other editor, but I use Notepad++ when I need a quick edit and don't want to fully load up a project.

    Nice share, thanks!

    Its good. I use to use UltraEdit. Wonder how that one is doing these days. It was an awesome text editor too.

    I write most of my code using notepad++ then move it over to visual studio to finish it up if need be. There are some plugins for notepad++ one off the top of my head is C# Intellisense for Notepad++<click here>
    (I wont be giving support on how to get this to work or how it works)

    Not knocking it, but I dont understand why you would use notepad++ when you have visual studio. Visual Studio will help you along the way with your coding with code references, and everything else..

    I use it for just quick looks at files when VS is not already open, and stuff like that. Personally though, I use VS for everything.. even simple text files for keeping notes :) Thats just me though! Again, not meaning anything by this, just talkin..

    loving this thread I downloaded the cs script plug in and im about to take a look at Visual Studio thanks for all the great input. My biggest concern is for a novice like me VS might be TOO MUCH I figured people who just need to modify a few lines of script here and there would enjoy notepad++ because it is so simple and familiar....for me it was nice just seeing numbers next to the code rather than counting 1,2,3,4 ect or using the search feature and not knowing what line it was on .

    Actually, I wouldnt look at VS that way what so ever. It can be just as easy to use as NotePad++ for a novice, too. It will help you code, and aid you with your coding edits as you do them. If you launch the JustUO project with VS, and edit a script, it will tell you in the code file as you go if the new lines of code are valid.. so you dont even have to compile the scripts to find errors..

    I would recommend it to anyone, novice on up :) Use VS and stick with it, then you dont have to learn two or more different kinds of editors and become even more confused switching between them.

    I developed my shard in Notepad++ for a year and a half. Could never be bothered figuring out how to set up my project in Visual Studio and figured Notepad++ was fine. When I finally started using VS to develop other applications, I realised how fricken stupid I'd been, VS is amazing and makes everything 100x easier.

    I have a Resharper license at work which is also great for learning, since it points out when there's a better way to write something. I have no idea if there's a free version of Resharper though, something I plan to look into!
